Teapot and Pitcher丨Dark Stone
A stoneware teapot handmade in Japanese style. Made of stoneware, the Japanese-style Gongdao cup (literally ‘the cup of fairness’) is also called ‘Tea divider’. Its main function is to distribute the brewed tea evenly and make sure the tea poured from the teapot has a uniform taste for everyone. The Gongdao cup was originally a drinking vessel from the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), it was only later incorporated into tea drinking. The Gongdao cup encapsulates the Chinese concept of avoiding greed and taking only what you need. Something very like the Swedish concept of lagom, everything in moderation!
